4:46 am
emily: good news. but it doesn't feel cold enough for snow. cindy: not here, but over the course of the weekend, some of the mountains in northern new england are going to get some fresh natural snow, too. it will be cold enough for them to keep making it, especially the state of maine. i think areas of northern maine, you see that blue coloring. that is corresponding to more than 1/2 foot of snow, in some cases close to a foot, over the course of the next three days. by sunday at 5:00 p.m., you can and especially northern maine and parts of northern new hampshire as well. here locally this morning, if you are heading out shortly, just be advised there is some fog out there, particularly away from the coastline. the visibility has dropped to 3/4 of a mile at the airport in worcester, a couple of miles in orange. so we do have the fog out there this morning. and nothing real widespread in terms of rainfall for most of us, but once you get along and outside of 495, there are patches of drizzle. steadier showers toward the new
4:47 am
spots this morning, because in pockets, the temperatures are pretty close to the freezing mark. you can see jaffrey is 34. orange 36. worcester 35. so it's pretty marginal overall, but just use a little bit of caution this morning. it could be a touch slippery. you get into pots, it's 40 degrees. mid 40's on the cape. out through worcester county, the threat for icing is this morning because as we get into midmorning, you see we're already up to 40 degrees and we're in the 40's this afternoon. it's going a mild day inspite of cloud cover locked in. it's going to be a gray day and damp. we have a storm offshore. there's winds coming in off the ocean. so that onshore east-southeasterly wind keeps the clouds in place throughout the day. as we go through the day even into the afternoon, can't rule out patchy drizzle and showers. damp overall. upper 40's to near 50 around boston. maybe sneak into the lower 50's on the cape. north and west of town, low to mid 40's for highs today.
4:48 am
showers, patchy areas of drizzle. it's nothing organized, but still hanging around at lunchtime and even into the afternoon and early evening hours, there will be a few showers around. keep that in mind if you're out and about today. we go into the overnight hours and tomorrow morning first thing and things don't change a whole lot. with the cloud cover overnight, we're only dropping into the upper 30's to near 40 degrees. we're going to watch this storm to our south get better organized during the day on saturday. it may throw some showers in especially massachusetts during saturday, but saturday night into sunday it really ramps up to our north and east and that is going to bring in drier air on a gusty breeze on sunday. so i think we actually get back into some sunshine on sunday. it's the brighter weekend today. if you have plans on saturday and you are over inland areas, i do think it's mainly dry, but notice the showers flaring up over southeastern massachusetts through lunchtime and close to the coastline in the afternoon. there could be a little bit of rain. that will pull away on saturday night, giving us brightening skies on sunday.
4:49 am
as we get towards the middle of next week. i saw 50's, kevin. a warmer pattern settling in. kevin: fantastic. happy thanksgiving. did you have a great day? cindy: i did. kevin: same here. i didn't eat that much. i left room for dessert and all of that. today is black friday, so we are going to keep an eye on those shopping centers and areas around them and such. and we already did see some early morning volume down in that wrem getting off route 1a for the wrentham outlets. rest of the roadways in decent shape although we're seeing volume around shopping areas. downtown not too bad. wet roadways. some areas could be slick in the higher elevations. up to the north, pretty much wide open. looking pretty good 95, 93, route 3 out of new hampshire and back up 128. no troubles by the north shore mall or the burlington mall.
4:50 am
15 minutes on the mass pike itself. 495 all the way into wesson. very light volume, route 3, 24, 95, even the expressway wide open. emily? emily: thank you. a talking in maine rescued after surviving underground for four days. moxie was at the center of a dog hunt when she snuck past the gate of her montville home. they schnauzer underground and started digging. local firefighters also responding to help. >> there she is. oh, oh, oh. oh, moxie. >> we knew she's here, but we can't find her, and that was really upsetting. and i started panicking, and i was surprised now looking back that nobody hit me in the head with a shovel. emily: the group rescued moxie unharmed and her owner says she

4:59 am
degrees. but over the interior, just some patches of drizzle and mist but temperatures are cold outside of 495. we're in the low to mid 30's right now. there may be one or two slippery spots. keep that in mind. as we go through the morning, temperatures warm up after sunrise. and we're actually going to jump up into the 40's. a little bit milder than yesterday thanks to that onshore flow. that's going to keep cloud cover in place. don't expect any brightening. a gray day you get down to d.c., it's 60 degrees today. you look across the country, there isn't a ton of cold air, so the temperatures are actually going to start to warm up next week. once we get this system offshore to move through, the weather will start to immove. there's some energy to the north that's going to dive down and start to energize this storm to our south on saturday, so during the morning hours on saturday on the cape, there may be a period of rain and then over the course of the weekend, the storm is going to lift northward and
